New Coordinated Entry System Policies Available For Public Comment

The policy development process for the Los Angeles Coordinated Entry System (LA County CES) is publicly accountable and includes opportunities for public comment.

Prioritization-related policies are now available for public comment. Click here to review the draft prioritization policies. 

Once you have reviewed them, you are invited to provide feedback for the CES Policy Council's consideration. The survey linked above will remain open until 12 pm on Wednesday, April 28, 2017. 


As the CES Policy Development Work Group discusses and informs CES policies, draft policies will be available for public comment. Public comment will be shared with the CES Policy Council alongside the original draft for them to review and then revise or approve. The final product will be a complete set of CES Policies and Procedures, which will encompass a range of topics organized around the core components of CES: Access, Assessment, Prioritization, and Referral. Public comment will be sought for all policies included in this complete set.

The CES Policy Council meets monthly at the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is on Thursday, April 5 at 9:00 am (this meeting replaces the March CES Policy Council Meeting).
